Fixed In:

Opened: Dec 02, 2014
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Virtual Server with unmatched context settings in a profile might block upgrade.

Impact

Cannot upgrade and roll-forward a configuration, and the system might post the following error message: 01070734:3: Configuration error: Less than the required minimum number of profiles found on /Common/test-vip5: At least 1 Of but Not more than 1 Of (UDP Profile, TCP Profile, SCTP Profile)

Conditions

This occurs when there is a virtual server configured with a TCP, UDP, or SCTP profile set with either (context clientside) or (context serverside), but without a corresponding profile with the other proxy side (serverside or clientside, respectively).

Workaround

There are 2 workarounds: 1: Before upgrade, modify the existing configuration, by either removing the (context) line or by adding the corresponding context, and then saving the UCS file. 2: After a failed attempt to load the UCS file, manually modify the UCS file as described in workaround 1., and then load the file again.

Fix Information

The system now prevents an unbalanced configuration of TCP, UDP, or SCTP profiles set with context clientside without a corresponding context serverside (and vice versa), and the upgrade process corrects existing configurations so that roll-forward occurs correctly.
